Tractor-Trailer Accidents

We Only Represent The Injured.


Being involved in an accident with a tractor-trailer commercial vehicle puts you at serious risk for severe injuries or death. These massive vehicles can weigh up to 80,000 pounds and extend as long as 53 feet. Their size and weight makes them harder to maneuver or stop which is why truck drivers must be well-trained, especially vigilant, and compliant with traffic law and safety regulations. When either drivers or trucking companies are negligent, accidents can occur leaving victims with devastating losses.

Tractor-Trailer Accidents in South Carolina

Accident claims involving commercial vehicles such as tractor-trailers are generally more complicated than other types of traffic injury claims. That is because the trucking industry must comply with complex state and federal regulations. These regulations cover many facets of trucking, from how long drivers can be on the road to driver qualifications, truck inspection reports, and more. Therefore, an investigation into a truck accident must include getting trucking company records and reviewing whether these regulations were violated which could prove vital to your case.

Tractor-trailer accidents can have many causes such as:

  • The driver was fatigued
  • The driver was distracted, such as by cell phone usage
  • The driver violated traffic laws, such as speeding or failure to yield
  • The driver was impaired by drugs or alcohol
  • Poor driving training
  • The truck was overloaded or improperly loaded
  • The truck and its parts were not properly maintained according to federal regulations
  • The truck or its components were defective (manufacturer negligence) 
  • The driver failed to account for blind spots

Large trucking companies also have their own legal teams or rely on the teams of their well-funded insurers whose main priority is not you. Often these insurance companies priority is to minimize or deny your claim. Insurance company representatives commonly engage in tactics designed to avoid liability for any injuries or deaths that occurred in the accident. 

That is why you need an attorney who knows how to intensively investigate truck crashes, including gathering and preserving evidence from the accident scene along with truck company records, black box documentation, police reports, and evidence of other experts.
